Think of Course Hero as a cozy college study group of 2 million students, minus the bad pizza. The site offers some 7 million crowdsourced study materials from users at more than 4,300 universities, along with video lectures, 24/7 tutors, free flashcards and online courses in entrepreneurship, business and web programming. Flashcards and online courses are offered for free on the site, but the money is in study materials--syllabi, lecture notes, practice problems--that can be purchased on a subscription basis for $39.95 per month. For uploading study materials to the site, students get credit toward purchases.
